The Newcastle acquisition finally happens
Last week, the dreams of many Newcastle fans came true when Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign in charge of the Tyneside club came to an end, and the Saudi Public Investment Fund took the reins, backed by a budget. considerable.
🤝 An investment group led by the Public Investment Fund, and which also includes PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media, has completed the acquisition of 100% of Newcastle United Limited and Newcastle United Football Club Limited from St. James Holdings Limited .

Now backed by the richest owners in world football, but sitting in the relegation zone without a win, the Magpies are sure to spend money in January to avoid a somewhat humiliating relegation to England’s second division.
Of course, the club will have higher ambitions than avoiding relegation by going forward, but for the rest of the season, they will just have to focus on remaining a Premier League team. So in January, bringing in experienced Premier League players is a must, even just for short-term benefits.
As a result, 101 take a look at three Arsenal players Newcastle could target in January.
1. Alexandre Lacazette
Do you need an experienced Premier League striker capable of holding the ball high and who knows where the back of the net is? Alexandre Lacazette is your man.

The Frenchman, now 30, has scored 67 goals in 174 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, but has become a clear second fiddle behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The forward has been limited to just 162 minutes so far this season, but only 49 of those have arrived in the Premier League, and he has yet to get his PL account up and running.
To add to this, Lacazette is at the last 10 months on her contract, and has it has not been reportedly offered an extension. This means that it will go free in the summer as it is, which will make for a tough offer in January for Mikel Arteta and co. to refuse.
Lacazette would certainly not be a long-term answer to any of the Tyneside club’s woes, but for £ 10-15 million, he would vastly improve his attacking line in January if they could convince Arsenal to sell.
2. Gabriel Martinelli
Another man who has struggled for playing time this season so far is Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli. The young sensation burst onto the scene in the 2019/20 season, scoring 10 times in 26 appearances for the club, but has since found himself injured or on the bench most of the time when in shape.
Gabriel Martinelli has only played twice this season despite being in top form. 👀

Blessed with pockets of skill, his path to Arsenal’s first team at the moment is unclear, thanks in part to the form of Emile Smith Rowe on the left flank. As such, it could well be available on loan in January, and it is one that would offer a low-cost solution to Newcastle’s problems in the future.
Martinelli would help take some of the creative and haggling stress off the talismanic figure of Alan Saint-Maximin, and reunite with fellow youth star Joe Willock, who traded London for the North East in the summer after a successful loan stint last season. .
The move would also be mutually beneficial, as Martinelli would have plenty of playing time, while Newcastle United would add a talented forward to their ranks.
Would it help them avoid the fall?
3. Rob Holding
From one end of the field to the other, and far less ambitious than the previous two on this list, Rob Holding is nonetheless a player Newcastle has signed up for. successive summers. Homegrown, experienced at the highest level and only 26 years old, Holding could be a smart acquisition even with new owners.
The Englishman is firmly behind Ben White in the pecking order, and will likely fall further when William Saliba returns on loan. For magpies, it would provide a very competent center back who embodies their no-nonsense attitude towards defense.
Valued at 16 million per trusted site transfermarkt, an offer of around £ 15m would undoubtedly get Arsenal’s attention and, in the process, give Newcastle a solid defender. The main question is, are his ambitions now much higher after the inauguration than Arsenal’s fourth-choice defender?
Newcastle fans, would you like to see any of these enter during the January transfer window?
